Endoscopic sclerotherapy is routinely used as treatment for bleeding esophageal varices. Recent controlled trials have evaluated the impact of sclerosis on short and long term survival after varices hemorrhage and compared sclerotherapy with shunt surgery. These studies are reviewed and the future of sclerotherapy discussed.
